I think Vern says he found the word in the dictionary and liked the sound. Besides, as hard as he and Gleda worked, they could not have had much time left for board games!

But, the font on the instructions looks like Nubian Black that he used in the early catalogs.

Now we have to ask them!

We kicked this around over at OldRockets a few years ago. I just thought I'd post this because I noticed that it has rocket shaped pieces. Sounds like a fantasy scale project waiting to happen!
